Assign Names Dynamically Based On Cell Content

Jul 10, 2009

I do have a data set from A1:C8 as follows:-
Brand Name(A1)Sales Value(B1)Margin(C1)Levi's100002000Arrow150002500Allen Solly120001300Hanes80001000John Miller250004500Disney280003200Ray Ban180002100

The above brands are categorized as follows:-

I would like to put formula from D1:D8 in such a way so that the Proposed categories are extracted automatically through formulae. This will help in getting the contribution calculated from different categories.

My concern is to automate this process using a VBA code. How can I search for the keyword given in Table 2 in the first column of Table 1 and assign the group names as it is assigned currently, considering the below conditions and criteria.

1) The correct group name should be assigned to the Domain name containing the keyword given as per criteria in Table 2

2) It is possible that the domain name will include more than one keywords given in Table 2. For example Cell number A7 contains both keywords NCG and EXC, in such cases the preferance should be given to EXC and we will assign the group name as EEC. And in Cell number A12 also contains both NCG and DMZ, again the preferance should be given to DMZ and we have to assign group name as ETIS.

That means we will give second preference to keyword NCG. If domain name contains none of the keywords except NCG as per given criteria then only we will assign grup name DOSS.

Change Content Of One Cell Based On Content Of Another

Apr 18, 2014

Formula/macro/etc that would enable me to have content of a cell changed based on the content of another cell in the same row.

Example: cell in column D says "PSA" - so I would need the cell in column H for that same row to read "Radio"

I would need an entire sheet scanned to review for these occurrences and make the appropriate changes. I also would need the formula to be inclusive enough to scan for variations in column D cell content (PSA 1, PSA 2, etc).

Dynamically Referencing Tab Names?

Nov 4, 2013

I'm pulling data into some graphs from multiple sheets. The data I'm after is in the same place in each of the sheets, and the sheet name is varying only in that they refer to different dates, such as "01-11-13", 02-11-13 etc...

How would I go about dynamically picking up the sheet name. and referring to it?

For example if I have a column with all the different sheet names in it:

Col AA:
31-10-13
01-11-13
04-11-13
etc!

Dynamically Adding Row Blocks Based On Cell Value

Apr 2, 2014

I've managed to get coding that allows me to insert single rows dynamically based on a cell value. Example is if I enter a value in cell C3 the coding inserts the same number of rows below.

I've also created a simple macro that inserts a multiple row block under the active cell, complete with formatting, text and some merged cells. Example is I run the macro and it will insert a block of 3 rows, complete with formatting, borders, text and merged cells.

My challenge is to bring these two elements together. So enter a number in a single cell which will then insert the same number of row blocks, complete with formatting etc. I've added a file to sample what it is I'm trying to achieve. I can add the coding I already have as well.

Dynamically Alter Macro Based On Tab Name Or Cell Value

Feb 1, 2014

I have a workbook with several tabs. One tab is named for the year eg 2014. Annually, I open the workbook, rename to the new year and rename the year tab to the next year eg 2014 to 2015. All the dynamic range names update as expected. Sheet2(2014) becomes Sheet2(2015). However, a line of macro code does not change and errors out because the year does not change.

Is there a way to dynamically modify the '2014' sheet reference to reflect the renaming of the year tab eg to 2015 or to reference a helper cell named YEAR?

The cell referenced above R332C1 is dynamic.

I have tried writing the above line many ways based on internet research but no success. I suspect I can use a LEN function to actually modify the line of code but I'm not sure its even possible to alter a macro dynamically to meet my needs here.

Dynamically Created Range Names In A Macro

Apr 1, 2008

I have 100s of name ranges in my spreadsheet. I am using a series of drop down boxes for the user to select the info that they want to see. Based on the dropdown box, the macro "dynamically generates" a range name from which to pull the info.

For instance, if they Select Manager = Terry, Analyst 1, and Month = Jan, then the range name would be JanTA1

The if statement would dynamically create this name by concatenating the info

If manager = Terry
mnger = "TA"
if analyst = 1
anlyst = 1
if month = Jan
mnth = "Jan"

rangename = mnth & mnger & anlyst

So, I am dynamically creating the range name based on user selections...then to display it, I want to set the display cell = to the value

Range("display cell").Value = Range(rangename).Value

The problem is, I am getting an object error every time I try to refer to a range this way.

If I type:
Range("display cell").Value = Range("JanTA1").Value, it works

Dynamically Create Named Ranges Based On Cell

Dec 16, 2007

I am looking for a solution to dynamically create named ranges according to the contents of cells in a particular column. The following code works for 1 word names, but in many cases the title cell contains numerous words separated by spaces. Is there a way I can adapt this code so that it will name the ranges with the spaces removed? For example, where cell C2 contains the narrative 'Sales Ledger Control', I would want the range name 'SalesLedgerControl'.

Range("R2:Z2").Name = Range("C2")

The named ranges are referred to in numerous other worksheets, where selecting a particular narrative from a listbox creates a dependant drop-down in the adjacent cell (eg if Sales Ledger Control is selected, the dependant list contains names of customers). FYI, the data validation in the other worksheets ignores the spaces in the range names, ie: =INDIRECT(SUBSTITUTE(G2," ",""))

It would not take me long to name the ranges manually, but a macro is preferable because the narratives in the title cells will often change and the range names will obvioulsy also therefore change.

Dynamically Fill Range Of Columns Based On Value Of Cell In Another Sheet

Feb 24, 2014

I wanted to enter value in sheet1 on A1. Columns in sheet2 from B1 until the value entered in sheet1.A1 should be automatically filled.

if Sheet1.A1=3, then Sheet2.B1=1, Sheet2.B2=2, Sheet2.B3=3.

if Sheet1.A1=7, then Sheet2.B1=1, Sheet2.B2=2, Sheet2.B3=3, Sheet2.B4=4, Sheet2.B5=5, Sheet2.B5=6, Sheet2.B5=7

Assign Yes / No To Cell Based On Meeting Some Criteria?

Jun 24, 2014

I need to write an excel function/macro/code to assign yes or no to a cell if the Description fits a certain category. I have attached a sample workbook and will explain what I mean.

In the sample workbook, there is data on a company. This included a unique ID, city, state, and description. What I want to do is fill out the yes/no column. So if a particular company has 2 of the 4 necessary "Descriptions", then column G will return yes, otherwise No. It must return yes for a particular company/ID if 2 of the "Descriptions" are "Sale", "Service", "Business", or "Par". I only want it to count at least two unique descriptions.

For example, in the sample workbook, Company A has all 4 of the necessary descriptions, thus everything in column G for this specific client should be yes. For Company B, only 1 of the 4 descriptions matches, so it returns No for all Company 2 columns. Company C has 2 of 4, so it returns yes for these columns. Note, it doesn't matter for Company C that "Business" was listed twice. It only needs to count the first unique time that description occurs.

Assign Range Name Based On Cell Values

Jan 24, 2009

In my workbook sheet 11 has some ranges that need to have names based on cell values in sheet2 (for purposes of data validation lists).

Range S28:S46 will assume the name of sheet2A11 & sheet2A3.
(example name period_1unit_1)

Range U28:U46 will assume the name of sheet2A11 & sheet2A4.

Range W28:W46 will assume the name of sheet2A11 & sheet2A5

Right now I am calling the code when something is entered into A11.

I have tried if statement and select case, but I ran into complications with both.

I have posted both codes with the questions I have concerning those codes.

Assign Data To A Separate Cell Based On Value Of Yet Another

Nov 7, 2007

I have a "memo of meeting" excel document used to capture notes during client meetings. In this document there's a cell for "purpose", "agenda", and "notes". The 'consultation type' cell is a drop-down populated by values set in Sheet2. The 'agenda' & 'notes" cells are then populated with information (also stored in Sheet2) based on what drop-down option was chosen in the 'purpose' cell. I'm currently making this happen with basic =IF() statements; however, the problem is that by doing it this way, the =IF() statement must reside in the actual cell which will end up showing the data.

This is undesirable as there may be additional notes, agenda items, etc. that I'll need to add during the meeting and as it's currently setup, I can only have either the pre-populated info OR the ad-hoc notes - not both. It seems a simple fix. Maybe put the =IF() statement in a cell off to the side but have it "assign" the value to 'agenda'/'notes' but that doesn't seem to work.

Assign Values To Names In A Dropdown List?

Mar 8, 2005

Is it possible to assign values to names in a list, so that when you validate it as a drop-down list, you can select a name from the drop-down and it's corresponding value will be added to separate cell? Basically, I have survey questions which have five possible responses: Excellent - Very Good - Good - Fair - Poor. We want to assign a value to each, 5 for Excellent, 4 for Very Good and so on, so that when a response is selected from a drop-down, it's value appears in a separate cell (so that we can calculate a total and average score from the selections).

Assign Names With Specific Numerical Values

Feb 27, 2008

My company is soon to be rolling out a new payment system, and I'd like to be able to track commission for everything I sell. Briefly, we get paid via a percentage of the company's gross profit, and the way in which the company gets paid is tiered. (the cellphone business)

So, If a customer activates a plan thats below $39.99, we get paid X amount. If it's below $59.99 we get paid Y amount, and so on and so forth, there are multiple different tiers.

What I want to do is set up a list via data validation so that I can pick what plan they have (via the name of the plan) and have it return a numerical value (ie $39.99) and also have the ability to pick text messaging, etc as options so that the workbook will add the monthly rates (39.99 + 14.95) and then have it return value for the right priceplan tier.

If this is confusing, I apologize for not being more clear, but attached is an example. The top one is what I'm actually trying to code, but the bottom is completely filled in, so you can get a more clear sense of what I'm trying to do. Honestly I'm not even sure if it can be done.

Can Use Variable Names To Identify / Assign To Other Variables Or Arrays?

Apr 10, 2014

I have set up a number of arrays e.g. DataSetA (1 to 100), DataSetB (1 to 100) etc.

Is it possible to use a string variable (e.g. DataIndentifier) to identify and assign values to certain arrays.

For example, under certain conditions

DataIdentifier would be set to "DataSetA" and under other conditions
DataIdentifier would be set to "DataSetB".

Having done this, I want to assign values such as DataIdentifier(1) = 3.4 or DataIdentifier (10) = 6.2 etc.

This obviously won't work because DataIdentifier is defined as a string not an array. How do I enable the string DataIdentifier to be used as an identifier for the array I want to assign values to? Therefore if DataIdentifier is set to "DataSetA" then effectively I want something like "DataIdentifier(1) = 3.4" to assign 3.4 to the array DataSetA(1).

Message Box Based On Cell Content And Day?

Mar 18, 2012

I am working on a spread sheet for work were we have to test certain items on certain days, e.g. one item needs to be tested every Tuesday & Thursday, when the test is completed you click on a drop down box and click on completed or in progress.

What I would like are a couple of things to happen as follows:

A message box would pop up when you open the file to inform the employee that the test is due today only on Tuesday & Thursday if not completed or in progress from the drop down box. Once you select completed or in progress from the drop down box the message box no longer appears. Every Tuesday & Thursday when it's first open it deletes the cell content, thus triggering the message box test is due today, and once completed or in progress it no longer appears until next Tuesday or Thursday.

The spread sheet is on shared drive and used by several users, let's just say cell A1 is the cell I have the drop down box

Run Macro Based On Cell Content

Aug 7, 2006

I have a drop down list made from the Forms toolbar with a list of items: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. I have set it with a linked cell, so when you choose, say 3, from the dropdown, 3 appears in B10.

I was hoping to add a 'Go' button, which would run another macro depending on what is in B10, i.e. so if 3 was chosen, then you press 'Go', Macro3 would be run.

So I have 5 macros called Macro1 - Macro5, and I need some code for the 'Go' button which will run the right macro depending on what number is in cell B10.
